James Vaden with County Mayor Randall Hutto

Wilson County Urban Type Facilities Board named James Vaden as Stormwater director.

"James has played a vital role in the Stormwater department, and I am happy to see him excel from within the department to the director role," Wilson County Mayor Randall Hutto said. "James is very knowledgeable about the county and will be a great fit for this position."

Vaden is a seasoned veteran of Stormwater, serving as coordinator for the City of Lebanon for 16 years prior to joining Wilson County Government. Vaden worked three years with the county as Stomwater inspector before being promoted to director of the department.

Stormwater is a federal mandated program that works with the flow of water which results from precipitation and maintains the quality of water. Stormwater discharges are generated by precipitation and runoff from land, pavements, building rooftops and other surfaces. The impervious surfaces don't allow rainfall to infiltrate into the soil surface like natural vegetation, so more of the rainfall becomes Stormwater runoff. The runoff accumulates pollutants such as oil, grease, chemicals, nutrients, metals and bacteria.
